COAS Bajwa Orders Immediate Inquiry Into ‘Karachi Incident’ After Bilawal’s Press Conference
Army Chief Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa has taken notice of the ‘Karachi incident’ and ordered inquiry into the same, announced Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR).
The COAS has asked the Karachi Corps Commander to “immediately inquire into the circumstances to determine the facts and report back as soon as possible”, the ISPR statement says.
The press release does not say as to which ‘incident’ the army chief was referring to. However, the timing of the press release leaves little ambiguity. Minutes before the ISPR statement, PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari said that the “institutions” should investigate the circumstances under which PML-N leader retired Capt Mohammad Safdar was arrested in Karachi on Monday.
